Stafford suspect 02

STAFFORD COUNTY, Va. – Detectives in Stafford said Friday that the nine-year-old boy who claimed a man tried to abduct him Tuesday afternoon made up the incident.

The alleged inclident child was on his bike in the Vista Woods subdivision at the time of the attempted abduction.

Detectives interviewed the boy and determined the child made up the story.

“Indications are that the young boy made up the story so that he would not get in trouble for an unrelated incident,” Stafford County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Bill Kennedy wrote in a news release.
